Glenbard South's Jordan Harks, a late bloomer and sleeper in the Class of 2009, committed to Olivet Nazarene Wednesday evening. The talented and athletic 6-6 forward received a wide range of interest from Division III powers, Division II schools and even some opportunities to walk-on at the Division I level, but in the end decided Olivet, a NAIA school in the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference, was the ideal fit.

In addition to the basketball opportunity and how impressed he was with coach Ralph Hodge, Harks noted the Christian environment fits his core values. Harks, who was MVP of the Western Sun Conference, averaged 22 points and 9 rebounds a game for a team that finished 20-8 and won a Class 3A regional championship. Harks is an underrated athlete who blossomed in his senior season.

Harks joins a recruiting class that also includes Washington sharpshooter Ben Worner, a 6-3 guard who averaged 16 points a game for the Panthers.
